Scottie Thompson went down in the fourth quarter of the Perpetual-EAC game, Tuesday, after a bad fall, and did not return, although the Altas won, 68-55.
The initial diagnosis for the Perpetual star guard was an ankle sprain, as Thompson shared he felt a shove from behind during a rebound play while he was in mid-air.
Replay showed Thompson landing on Laminou Hamadou’s foot, and the former crippled down in pain for a few minutes before being escorted out of the floor.
“Sa ngayon hindi ko masabi. Masakit pa. Hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling ang sakit,” Thompson said. “Pag landing ko, nagtwist na ang ankle ko e. Kapag talon ko, parang may tumulak sa akin.”
The playmaker also added it was not necessarily wear and tear, but just an unfortunate turn of events.
“Hindi naman siguro, dahil ang ginagawa ko lang ay pasa-pasa sa mga teammates ko. Siguro inabot lang talaga,” Thompson, who shall be examined further in Perpetual Help’s medical facility, said.
Even after the injury, Thompson hopes he can return to the Altas’ next game.
“Kaya ‘to,” he said.
